Featured by The Sunday Times (UK), Reviver has been selected as one of 2013's most exciting new releases by Stylist (UK)!
"(A) gripping conspiracy thriller."
“Supernatural thrillers don’t get much better than British author Patrick’s assured debut, the first in a trilogy…Patrick has carefully thought through the implications of this phenomenon, including religious objections and insurance issues, and maintains the suspense throughout.”
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“This is a gutsy book…Jonah himself [is] a lead character who has what it takes to anchor a genre-bending series. An interesting debut.”
"A skillfully plotted and compulsively readable supernatural thriller"
“The first of what promises to be a terrific trilogy. A superbly fleshed-out cast of characters, including Jonah’s amiable friend and revivalist technician Never Geary, add ballast to a story which gives us some brilliantly spooky moments, melds crime and the paranormal in a cracking, page-turning thriller and asks serious moral questions about the exploitation of the bereaved. An impressive, intelligent and exciting debut.”
—Lancashire Evening Post
—Neal Asher, International bestselling author of The Departure
"A thrilling high-concept book that crosses numerous genres. Chilling and emotional in all the right places"
—Mark Charan Newton, author of the Legends of the Red Sun series
“A brilliant, original and very scary concept - which Seth Patrick carries off with chilling aplomb.”
—Peter James, author of the Detective Superintendent Roy Grace series
“A highly original story skilfully told, a thriller that twists and turns all the way to the end.”
—Simon Kernick, author of A Good Day to Die
“Patrick has created an entire forensic discipline, all backed up with authentic (at least, to this non-scientist) and utterly believable detail. I was completely absorbed by the weird take on the world he has created between the covers of this book. Heartily recommended.”
